Professional’s Prize: Squall: Exhibition: Corrections


Sunday 14 May 2017

Played 18 in the professional’s (Robert Giles) prize starting at 12:42.  Sean McNulty joined me in the buggy.  Brian Farrell walked.  I was going well until a squall hit us on the 15th tee.  I played short off the tee with a 4-iron but chalked up a 9 on the hole.  I hit 2 shots to get out of the left trees and I think I took 4 putts.  Followed with an 8 on 16.  Generally, I played tidy golf.  My score 93 – 15 = 78.  Never took my 3-metal or rescue out of the bag except to hit tee shots on 1 and 7.  Took a shower and changed my clothes.  Drank water from my blue TUI credit union drinking bottle and quaffed a pot of tea along with a scone, butter, jam.  Sean gave me €5 towards the buggy.  Tottenham defeated Manchester United 2 – 1.  Made porridge: a cup of pin-head oats, 1 ½ cups of milk, 2 cups of water, 2 spoons of white sugar, the dregs of the bottle of Powers’ Gold Label which I won in Greenore a few months ago.  Ate, too: sliced ham, Brie, green stuffed olives; 2 Kiwi fruit; a cup of coffee.  I ate no supper although I stayed up until 00:30 watching the finish of The Players.  Si Woo Kim won by 3 from Oosthuizen and Poulter in joint second.  An exhibition of chipping and putting.  I did well in that department myself today.  I ate pan bread, butter, brie, apricot preserve; tea: for breakfast.  Bought 2 KitKats in Bellurgan where I withdrew €100 this morning.  Met the man who was parked beside me in Gyles’ Quay yesterday in a black Mercedes.  He recognised me and heard the music I was playing on my car radio yesterday.  Very pleasant individual.  Who is he?  Gave one of the KitKats to Sean McNulty on the 13th fairway.  Sean out of sorts recorded a NR and did not play a lot of the holes at all.  Brian Farrell scored much the same as me.  His handicap is 8.  Eamonn alone in the house all day got through a lot of corrections.  Rosanna away caddying in Manaan Castle.  Greenore lost.  Paul Smyth rang.  Greenore defeated in the semi-final of the Pierce Purcell.  Paul was rested for that match.  I heard that young Matthew Giles scored 64 today in his father’s prize.
